REBUILD GASSETT (House Fire Relief)

Hey Dayton. Our beloved father, John Gassett (aka John Dad), could really use a helping hand right now. His house caught on fire on Thursday 12/14 and everything inside of it was lost. This is the house he pays for his daughter’s mom and 4 children to live in, although he lives on his own with his father, Butch.

Thankfully nobody was injured, but everything was lost.

The holidays are a financially strenuous time for everyone, but our dear friend John lost his house. Could you please find some extra cash to pass his way? I have no idea how much it will cost to rebuild and repair something like a burned down home (the house itself cost around $80K), but the fire chief estimates about $50K in damages, so the donation target is set fairly low and is going to be used to help with immediate needs and whatever the insurance company does not cover.

(Homeowners insurance will definitely be involved, but we all know how insurance companies can be.)

Please like and share, let’s try and help our dad out.

This is real life.

Thank you,
